  1. Looks very interesting. I'd be up for a challenge. I'd be cool with either Germany or France. Always wanted to manage there, never seems to happen in any of my saves. Fingers crossed for a sweeper-less formation.
  2. Like the doc said, you desperatley need a runner in your midfield to bomb past your F9. I am guessing your APa and F9 mostely operate in the same space. Against a defensive side you should try to have more creativity in the cm/dm strata. I would probably also go with another attacking wing back too. Try changing your APa to a RPs and your CMd to a CMa. And than maybe a DMd or Anchorman to cover for the full back positions and mop up clearences. My 2 cents anyway.
  3. Some of my early ones Parris just came in from Volendam, the other two are from my own youth intake.
  4. Jan Olde Riekerink has been my go to guy for the last coupleof editions. Great JA/JP, DDM and working with youngsters. Man management 14 and tactically sound. Plus he will sign for low wages and no fee. edit: beaten to it lol
  5. Happens quite often irl. It's become an integral part of the dutch school of football. Jan Vertonghen was famous for it when he played for Ajax and is starting to do it more and more for spurs. You see Blind and Samlling doing it a lot under van Gaal. etc Unfortunately it's been very hard (if not impossible) to create in the match engine, specifically getting your central defenders to dribble into midfield.
  6. Looks awesome. Would you mind uploading yours to the steam workshop or posting the hidden data over here so we could replicate? I really want to add him to my first serious game, but adding him myself via the editor would kind of feel like cheating. Plus I feel I haven't seen enough of him in action to replicate him myself anyway. Would be much appreciated.
  7. Having a punt with Kingstonian. Meet Frank Spears

  9. Apparently 30-year old unemployed Dutch bartender Waldy Waldy is Hampton and Richmond Boroughs new manager. Waldy showed up at The Beavers training ground with a handwritten 1 year contract on the back of a 650 euro bar tab, signed by both chairman Steve McPherson and himself. McPherson was quoted as saying: "The contract seems to be legally binding, even if I do not remember signing it nor meeting mister Waldy." The Beavers new manager reportedly said: "Challenge accepted!", before going into the nearest pub he could find for a nice refreshing pint of lager.
  10. Tactics section might be your best bet on some decent advice. However I'll give you my two cents for what it's worth. I found that playing a 3-5-2 wingback formation like yours made me vulnerable in transitions from attack to defense and vice versa. When I started to play a flt 3 in center midfield with one deep lying playmaker flanked by two box2box midfielders I almost always outnumbered my opponents in both attacking and defending phases of play.
  11. I would like to take the Ajax thread if that's okay. Did it for fm 12, skipped last year because I was too busy working. This year I've got some more time on my hand.
  12. Awesome! Never miss up an opportunity to make a Catch 22 reference!
  13. GK Igor Akinfeev DR Cafu DC Mamadou Sakho DL Bixente Lizerazu MR Kennedy Barkicioglu MC Sherdan Cardenas ML Arjen Robben ST Peter Prospar (hounorable mention fot Anatoli Todorov)
  14. To be fair, Martin Jol is well known for preforming above expectations with lesser quality squads, while he seems to struggle managing better sides. Going on that he would be the perfect man for the England job ;p
  15. I just had a brainfart. Maybe this has been said already but how a about a mobile app that allows you to tinker tactics, set pieces etc. So instead of just thinking about it all day you could fool around creating different tactis while on the can, in the train or at work....
  16. I´ve been wanting for years now to be able to make my ball playing defender dribble into the midfield. Like Vertonghen used to do at Ajax and still occasionally does at Spur
  17. Thiago Motta played for both brazil and Italy. I think I've read somewhere that when you have dual nationalities and havn't played for you country for 5 years you're allowed to switch associations?
  18. dude.... the only reason i can think of that merits an ignorant statement like that is that you're probablytoo young to have ever seen San Marco play. Rooney isn't good enough to polish his freakin shoes.
  19. Eriksen Affelay Wilshire As you might guess I like young technical attacking midfielders
  20. I use the ajax system Louis van gaal introduced. When asked about the starting line-up he would actually say on 1 van der Sar, on 2 Reiziger, on 3 Blind, on 4 de Boer etc... Comes down to: GK 1 DR 2 CB 3 CB 4 DL 5 RCM 6 LCM 8 AMC 10 RF 7 STR 9 LF 11 I just fill op the rest though 23 and 21 have a special place in my heart, probablu due to zidane and van der Vaart so I usually hand them out to creative midfielders, but you have to earn those if you play for me! Oh, and 14 is a no go with me, that's El Salvador's number. Reserved if I ever get a player that can fill his shoes (has never happened in over 15 years of FM and Cm though...)
